This one is also worth checking out:

Tempo and energy level are just moderate, so it may not be what you're looking for, but it has very inventive guitar work throughout. Death Don't tease at end, followed by (spliced) transition to great Sitting on Top of the World, which then segues to one of the best Cold Rain and Snow's I've ever heard (a hybrid between bluesy 1970 versions and frenetic 1966 versions), with another segue to a great Doin' That Rag. Jamming at end of latter is some of the best I've heard on that number.

cliff is being a silly troll again. smi2les never ending story again? the only truth is that i´m just a big fan of afforementioned, estimated poster, that´s all

vapors asked for an EXPLOSIVE 11. to my knowledge, there´s nothing in the recorded history of grateful dead even remotely as explosive as 68-06-14. cliff should strike a match while listening to this one and see what happens

2-12-69 is indeed very nice--hadn't listened to that one in a while. Thanks for the ref. Long opening 8-beat section with Bob/Phil jam--Jerry break a string? No surprise that Cliff likes this one, as Jerry's jamming has a 1968 quality, with little rubato or variation in dynamics, but an endless string of inventive note combinations. There's also a killer solo in the Death Don't Have No Mercy that follows. Well worth a listen!

I've never found one better than 2-28-69, on the Fillmore West 1969 3-pack and 10-pack. Added bonus: transitions to strong Death Don't Have No Mercy.

I haven't heard a better one than 2/28/69

BUT...

3/2/69 ain't shabby either...I also enjoy 8/22/68

Agreed--really, there isn't a bad 11 in that Fillmore run. Even the truncated 3-1-69 version with the bizarre transition to Lovelight has some great playing.

Now we are talking my kind of era and song. The above are some great ones, but incomplete.

Try 2-11-69 (comm release).

Amazing.

I saw this post last night and thought..."Hmmm, this is best left to the <78'ers, wonder where Mr. Tell is?"

I knew you'd have an opinion, which I suggest the original poster follows.

Talk about a tune they should have never dropped or at least brought back. One of the Good things about "The dead" was reviving this puppy
